Overview of CTE at OU BOCES
Orange-Ulster BOCES Career and Technical Education programs give students the opportunity to graduate from high school with technical experience, professional skills, national industry certifications, and college credit in a wide variety of high-demand occupations.
Through a hands-on academic component in each classroom, CTE students are able to integrate academics into their CTE curriculum to meet their high school graduation requirements. Many of the career academies are nationally accredited and feature leading-edge technology, as well as instructors with the latest trade experience. The CTE curriculum is aligned with New York State Learning Standards, National Industry Standards, and Career Development and Occupational Studies (CDOS) Standards.
Students participate in work-based internships in the community; clubs such as SkillsUSA; local, state and national competitions (SkillsUSA, GYNADA, Cyber Patriots, HOSA) and career-oriented community service projects.
The Career and Technical Education Division has programs located on two campuses in Goshen, one on Gibson Road and the other at the Regional Education Center at Arden Hill.
